Friday was sadly the last day of spirit week. It was a perfect day to finish the week and even included an enjoyable rally to announce the homecoming king. All the classes came representing their class color trying gain spirit points. However Anthony who is a junior stated, “ I do not feel too excited about our color since it is a color I use on a daily basis and wish it were different.” But Ingrid again remarked that as a senior she liked the color since “it’s is easy to wear”. Everyone had different opinions about the last day.

 

This year’s spirit week introduced many different activities which students appreciated. The winners of the most spirited class was the seniors defeating the other three classes.
